The Sanctuary offers two types of eco-chic accommodations: Jungle Lofts and Studio Houses. Each type has its own unique qualities, size, bed options, and layout. All houses are set amongst picturesque tropical gardens with observation decks, hammocks, and wonderful jungle vistas. They are powered by high-tech solar power system, have green lighting, spectacular outdoor solar hot water showers with garden views, ceiling fans, and screened in walls giving you an up-close and intimate experience with nature.

The retreat includes double accommodation. Couples can have a queen bed, singles will have two twin beds. Each casa sleeps 2 guests in separate beds with mosquito nets, fans, spacious bathrooms, and hammocks on the patio.
